ACADEMIC POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Some of these policies are of particular interest to students in the normal course of their academic activities.
OTHER POLICIES AND PROCEDURES FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF HISTORY
- Sudents will be provided with a course outline at the beginning of every course in electronic and/or hard copy format.
- Students are expected to attend class regularly and arrive on time. The course instructor has the right to refuse admission to students who come late. The course instructor is not obliged to brief, re-instruct, notify, refresh or otherwise serve students who fail to attend scheduled classes. Instructors do not provide notes about what students may have missed. Instructors are free to make announcements in class - orally - about assignments and other course matters as long as the overall evaluation scheme on the course outline is respected. Students who do not attend a class carry the entire responsibility for what they missed (obtaining notes, if desired, from others; doing required work; and in fulfilling any obligations set forth in the missed class). Students who expect to be absent from class for a substantial period of time should consult the Chair of the Department of History.
- Students must not disrupt classes or behave in ways that inhibit the learning environment of a course. Instructors may require students who misbehave to leave the class.
- Instructors may restrict or ban the use of computers and other electronic devices in their classes if they wish.
- Group Work Assignments for students are believed to produce a result that is larger than the sum of its parts. Group assignments normally will not account for more than 30 per cent of the total grade for a course.
- Grade Appeal Forms for History courses may be submitted to the Program Administrator, who will date stamp them and forward them to the Chair.
